The only "gotcha" I've ever run into configuring mod_dav is that you
have to remember to add in a DAVLock parameter (I think that's what
it's called -- RTFM).
The other is that not all WebDAV clients are created equally. Some
have weird issues (Mac OS X goes nuts if you WebDAV with resource forks
in my experience) and some don't support it over https.
